in washington, d.c., or in wichita, or san francisco is effectively working shoulder to shoulder with a computer user in beijing or moscow. there is literally milliseconds of difference in space and time in cyberspace. i thought i would point that out. as for the security, the reality is is almost remarkable how vulnerable computer systems are. cyberspace is not what most people think it is. most people equate cyberspace with the internet, but if they want to think clearly about what cyberspace is, it is important note it is a gps system on new cars, it is the iphone, the droids, it is jetfighters, jet planes, anything driven by computers -- excuse me, computer code, and linked to networks can be part of cyberspace. and the vulnerabilities are almost stunningly pervasive. >> can you give an example? >> sure, charlie miller, who is a former government hacker, who is now on the good side, a security specialist, one of the great hackers in the world, he last year decided to explore the vulnerabilities in the iphone. he found a vulnerability in the iphone that when he deployed it the right way, and
project -- a side from its appellate his that are denied it -- >> at&t tried to introduce uverse in san francisco. it took them years to get the necessary approval. i mention that in particular because video is one area that has seen increased competition. you have this telecommunications provider trying to provide a video. municipalities and the government should do everything we can -- they can to reduce those barriers. >> david, when -- davdi cohen was not concerned about google being a fiber threat. do you think that is an issue that there is not enough capital? >> i cannot say whether there is enough capital, but i can say companies have told me they are sitting on billions of dollars on their balance sheet. they are going to be more hesitant to make those investments in fiber deployments or internet infrastructure. it is not worth taking the risk if -- >> it has been a priority to clear the red tape. is there something the fcc is not doing right? >> there are several things the commission could do. the first thing is what i mentioned earlier. making sure we do not expand or extend
that mrs. vilsack was left of san francisco and you said democrats in to create chaos in order to gain power. can you explain those comments? >> i believe i said i expect k s that comes from fiscal irresponsibility which would come eventually if we did not balance our budget. if you look at the groups that supported her, they are out there left the san francisco and one would be the anti-meat lobby. i'd think it is an easy case to make. this is not a centrist running against a conservative. when you look at the positions, it is a different story. i have held several women elected to office. by nominated kim reynolds for state governor. she might not have won the nomination if i did not advocate for her. i donated money and campaigned with her. >> why did you call attention to your age? >> my dad used to say there comes a time in a person's life when people don't think about you anymore and i should not say that since i am running for office but i think it is an asset in congress because i think i am going to congress to do something, not to be someone. i am someone already. i have had
. he set up their in san francisco, i will raise your taxes. he has had a lot of experience in that, and he will do it. i remember a statement of lyndon johnson when he was looking around why his party people were not supporting him. he said, hey, they painted their tails white and ran with the antelope. there are a lot of democratic whitetails running with the antelope. not one single democrat has introduced the mondale tax bill into the congress. of course i support the president's economic program and i support him on everything else. i am not sure because of the concept of the vice presidency that if i did not, i would go do what mr. mondale did with jimmy carter, a job away from it. i cannot do that to mr. reagan now, next year, or any other time. i have to much trust in him. i have too much friendship with them. i would feel uncomfortable during that. >> some republicans the criticized saying he disagreed with the decision to impose a grain embargo. have you ever disagree with any decision of the reagan administration? where in your judgment as loyalty and and principal begin?
. >> mr. king, when you were speaking with iowa republicans, you said that she is left of san francisco and you said that democrats and to create chaos and order to gain power. can you explain that? >> i said they profit from chaos with fiscal irresponsibility. you look at the groups supporting mrs. vilsack and spending hundreds of thousands -- they are left of san francisco. one is the anti-meat lobby. this is not a centrist running against a conservative. if you look at the positions -- and with regard to the women issue, i got women voted to office, and i nominated kim reynolds. the last woman to run for congress was marianne miller- meeks. i campaigned for her and vilsack worked against her. >> why did you call attention to your age? >> there comes a time when you don't care what people think, but i need the votes of 700,000 people, but this is an aspect i bring to congress. i am someone already. i want to get things done. >> the implication is that you are in congress to "be someone." >> if anyone wants to look at my record, they know i'm moving the iowa agenda. and you don't just
, the more conservative democratic areas. the president made that statement in a san francisco fund-raiser in the midst of the democratic primary in pennsylvania in march and april, that primary in 2008. we six week period where there was literally nothing else going on in the campaign except the upcoming pennsylvania primary. that became a huge issue. what it does remind voters, particularly in the southwestern part of the state, of the president's position on guns. pennsylvania is a strong nra pro-gun state. it has been difficult for gun control advocates to get legislation through pennsylvania changing the gun laws here. i do not see any opportunity -- there is doubt we'll see change in the foreseeable future. i do not know that that is a decisive comment, but it lingers on as a problem for the president. in parts of the state. caller: frank is trying s -- republican line. caller: old forge is located grebetween scranton and wilkes- barre. my question is about the honesty of voters. many voters say they voted -- the democrat party here has to long-term senator is that are current
going to be hard to work out. let me close with a fascinating analogous case that arose in san francisco in 1966 when the city of san francisco said it would not fund social-service agencies, including catholic charities that did not provide health-care benefits to domestic partners. the catholic archbishop of san francisco, no liberal, he wound up succeeding rep singer for the congregation of the doctrine of the faith. but they came to a compromise designate anyone legally domiciled in the residence as a health-care co beneficiary. be that person a child, a parent, an aunt, a close friend or a gay and lesbian partner. the archbishop argued the catholic church was always in favor of increasing health-care insurance coverage and this was a way to do it, even though there would be this other factor involved. in my judgment, the second set of rules from the obama administration proposes compromise which in its own way tries to respect the freedom and rights of all parties involved. thank you. [applause] >> thank you and good evening. i'm here representing more than 120,000 women who live pa
areas. the president made that statement at a san francisco fund-raiser in the midst of the democratic primary in pennsylvania in march and april, that big primary in 2008. there were six weeks where there was literally nothing else going on in the campaign except the upcoming pennsylvania primary. that became a huge issue. what it does remind voters, particularly in the southwest, of the president's position on guns. pennsylvania is a strong nra pro gun state. it has been difficult for gun control advocates to get legislation through pennsylvania sort of changing the gun was here. i do not see any opportunity will likelihood that it will change in the foreseeable future. i do not know if that is a decisive comment, but it lingers on as a problem with the president in parts of the state. host: republican line, pennsylvania, good morning. caller: i am on the county line between what the wants and -- lackawanna and scranton. many voters say they vote the person and not a party. the democratic party here has been run by two long-term senators that are currently either indicted or are bein
: speaking of tea party, guy harrison i was in 4th district, according to the san francisco political blog, steve king lost some base support. democrats would love to pick up this seat. guest: i'm sure they would love to pick up the seat. the problem is they've already thrown in the towel. the rest of the democratic super pacs given up the seats. i'm glad they wasted money on this seat. steve king will win overwhelmingly. getting back to the budget. let's focus on the fact that barack obama budget was put in the house and senate and it got zero vote. that's a stilling argument. he's gotting zero votes, none in the house and none in the senate. listen, when you're negotiating, it's hard to negotiate with yourself. the democrats never figured out a way to get their whole coalition of democrats around everything. we look forward to negotiating with them and look forward to increasing job growth. host: robby mook, have democrats given up on vilsack? guest: that's untrue. we invested tremendous amount of money in the district. the real story here is this race is in play at all in the first p

yesterday in san francisco -- talking about the need to be a revolutionary. that's the way founders and entrepreneurs need to think of themselves. i read about it in regard to mark zuckerberg. the founders are the most impact all of our era. but that implies an urgency that i wonder if it is widely enough understood. any thoughts on that? what you guys are doing is a truly revolutionary. people ought to be really scared of it or be really getting on board fast. >> the entrepreneurs -- there are two types. some are looking to create an interesting product or service and have somewhat modest ambitions. that is fine. the other which are really trying to change the world and trying to do something which is more long-term built to last kind of thing. they have to have passion and perseverance. when we started a a well 27 years ago, only 3% of people were on line and were on an outbreak -- were on line one hour a week. finally in the mid '90s things kind of took off, and everyone's like, oh, aol's we stuck with it and it took us a decade before we got traction. then that mid-90s thing too
into that lens and he said out there in san francisco, he said i'm going to raise your taxes. well, he's had a lot of experience in that, and he's sure going to go ahead and do it. i remember a statement of lyndon johnson, as he was looking around, his party people weren't supporting him. he said, hey, they painted their tails white and they ran with the antelope. there are a lot of democrats running with the antelopes. not one single democrat introduced that tax bill into the congress. of course i support the president's plan. i support him on everything else. i'm not sure if i didn't i would go doing what mr. mondale has done with jimmy carter, jump away from him. i couldn't do that to ronald reagan now, next year, or any other time. i have too much trust in him, i have too much friendship for him, and i would feel very uncomfortable doing that. >> some now claim he disagreed privately with jimmy cart's -- carter's decision to improse the grain emming. -- embargo. where, in your judgment, does loyalty end and principle begin? >> you can't have the united states of america out there looking
on the san francisco giants and st. louis cardinals game, no spontaneous outbursts during the debate if someone hits a home run. so in a minute frank is going to tell you to turn them off. this is really, really important to us because this is an occasion that we get to witness, an occasion of american history. but it is utmostly a part of our history, an event that really the american people have to be able to experience without our interruption. so please honor that. that includes, by the way, no photographs, flashes, and even cell phone screens can make a real difference in disrupting some of the broadcasts that will occur tonight. so we ask you to abide by those rules tonight. you know, up in new york, they transgressed twice during the last debate with some audience interruptions. we hope you in florida will do a better record than the new yorkers. i probably just got in trouble for saying it. it's now my pleasure for me, my counterpart on this, the co-chair of the commission on presidential debates is frank fahrenkopf along with paul kirk, my predecessor, 25 years ago establish
interests way back in 1860's when they tried to monopolize the san francisco waterfront. he signed also against many of thinks fellow democrats when he placed california formally behind president lincoln in the union in the outbreak of the civil war. his appearances in support of his policies were also known to cause such passion that fistfights would break out in various different places. so he could literally say that he was the first action star governor of california. i also love that he was the first immigrant to lead our great state sofment we have a lot in common. so for me it's a true honor to serve in this role. i look forward to the schwarzenegger institute to help preserve and grow the california dream that brought governor downey and me to this great state. the goal of our institute is not only to share what i have learned when i was governor and what i did when i was governor but to continue to work that was unfinished. every governor arrived in office with a long list of ambitious goals. if you finish half of them, you're lucky. i was one of the lucky ones. the promise bec

of candor reveals his thoughts. remember four years ago when he was talking to people in san francisco, he said people in the midwest like to cling to their guns in their religion. this cafe deer hunter is guilty as charged and proud of it. another issue that came up -- taxes. last night, president obama made it clear he is going to raise taxes. today, vice president joe biden made it even more clear. in i what he said, he asked himself a question and he asked if he and president obama wants a trillion dollar tax hike. his response to himself was yes, we do. that is a direct quote. virginia, no, we do not mitt romney will talk about this in a minute. what we do not needs is a

. the texas 23rd race. this is a piece written in san francisco about the texas 23rd race. guest: this is an exemplary race. you have somebody who's out of line with this district -- he opposes the dream act in a district that is 60% hispanic. he has been dogged by his vote to end medicare as we know it and drive seniors' health care cost up. he's a millionaire who has voted to create new tax breaks for himself but voted against the middle class. these are the issues you see them going back and forth and it's a very clear choice for voters in this district. guest: our candidate is a true testament to the american dream. you insult him by calling him a millionaire, but he is a self- made man. it is amazing democrat only what you if you haven't had success, but once you have success, we're going to denigrate your success and bring you down. this is one of the problems with the democratic problem -- democratic party, they are always after the job creator. he's going at it to win this race because he is going against someone who wants to cut gas jobs. texas is growing fine, thank you
